At one point during development, Spaghefant was supposed to have a pre-evolution named Pacystrami.
Its Pokedex entry is based on the song Lose Yourself by Eminem.
If you listen closely to its cry, you can hear Luigi saying his infamous line "Spaghetti" from the Philips CD-I game Hotel Mario.
Spaghefant is a combination of spaghetti and elephant
It's an elephant made out of spaghetti with meatball ears that can release sauce out of its trunk like how an elephant can release water out of its trunk. Its shiny makes its colors (aside from the ears) that of an elephant's skin.
